March 13, 2018- (Milwaukee) Milwaukee Repertory Theater finishes out the 2017/18 Season in the Stackner Cabaret with the return of the smash hitAlways…Patsy Cline created and originally directed by Ted Swindley – based on a true story. Licensed by the family and estate of Patsy Cline. Always…Patsy Cline features the return of Kelley Faulkner (Guys and Dolls, Ragtime) in the role of Patsy and welcomes Tami Workentin (Good People) as Louise Seger in this brand new production directed by Milwaukee native Laura Braza (Grounded, Souvenir).
Always…Patsy Cline is the true story of country music legend Patsy Cline’s remarkable friendship with devoted fan Louise Seger. Filled with two dozen unforgettable hits – including “Crazy,” “I Fall to Pieces,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Walkin’ After Midnight” – Always . . . Patsy Cline celebrates the life and music of one of the most acclaimed vocalists of the 20th century.
After a record-breaking sold-out engagement in 2012, Kelley Faulkner dazzled audiences and earned rave reviews. Milwaukee Journal Sentinelsaid, “Faulkner hits every note while singing more than two dozen songs doing justice to Cline’s wide-ranging repertoire: honky-tonk and western swing; rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll; two emotionally charged spirituals and Cole Porter’s “True Love,” which Faulkner renders with simple beauty.”
